I've never used Virtual Box so I am at a loss.
Our service coordinator recently added a 2nd monitor to system and she wants to run a DOS app (Parts/service software we use "Professional File System") exclusively on the second monitor in full screen mode. Obviously this won't work at present since the full screen mode causes it to show up on both monitors.
I've considered using Virtual Box to run a second XP environment in a window, then connecting to the DOS app (shared on local network) and running it in full screen mode which then the window could be maximized. That is the plan.
So far I have installed VB and created the XP enviroment. Getting the internet to work hasn't gone so well.
Bridging the VB connection to the Ethernet connection kills the connection altogether.
I've tried several tutorials online but so far nothing has worked.
The computer IP is set to autoconfig, currently its 192.168.1.113, gateway is ""1.1. I've set the VB IP to 192.168.1.156 and same gateway. I've set the VB network info the same on both the computer and VB enviroment.
I've tried different attached protocols and nothing has worked.
